Paying for your holiday
You will be required to pay a deposit per week booked at the time of booking, to secure your holiday booking.
• Touring and pods deposit – £38.75 per week
• Holiday homes deposit – £73.75 per week
Your remaining balance will be due in full 8 weeks prior to arrival. You will need to call us in the booking office to make a payment using a credit or debit card or by cheque (see section ‘payments by cheque’).
If you have given us your e-mail address, we will send out a payment reminder e-mail a few days before your payment is due. We do not send reminder letters, but your payment due date is written on your confirmation for your reference. If there are any issues with your holiday payment, please notify us at the earliest opportunity so we can discuss this with you.
If your payment is late, we will notify you of non-payment. Non- payment will attract a non-negotiable late payment charge of £20.00 on all bookings. In the event we do not receive payment and we do not hear from you, we reserve the right to terminate our contract with you and cancel the holiday booking without a refund. All bookings made within 8 weeks of arrival must be paid in full at the time of booking.
The Cancellation Scheme premium is automatically included in the deposit unless you specifically select otherwise. We strongly advise you to take this as no refunds are given without it. For a small premium, Hendra will refund any monies paid excluding the cancellation and booking fees, provided we receive written confirmation of cancellation of the entire party at least 4 weeks before the commencement of your holiday. Between 4 weeks prior to arrival and your arrival date Hendra will only refund if cancellation is due to any of the following – death, serious illness or redundancy to a member of the booked party. Please note that the claim must be in writing and supported by the relevant documents. Our acknowledgement is evidence of our having received your notification.
Should you decide that you don’t wish to be included in our cancellation scheme you have 14 days from the time of booking to notify us, in writing, that you wish to be excluded.
Our cancellation scheme covers you until you arrive on site after which refunds cannot be given if for any reason you should leave early. You may wish to take out your own holiday insurance to cover this.
Additional holiday costs
It is possible to choose a specific pitch or caravan number prior to arrival and subject to availability. We charge a fee of £10.25 off peak and £18.00 peak to choose a pitch number.
If you need to make significant changes to your booking such as the holiday date there is a charge of £20 payable at the time of the change being made, by debit or credit card.

The key deposit is a damage waiver deposit to be retained in the instance of breakages, shortages, smoking in caravans/pods, damage, lost keys and additional cleaning required and any behaviour detrimental to the enjoyment of other guests and/or staff.
Where we require a higher value returnable deposit, such as for group bookings, we will charge a security deposit in addition to the key deposit, and will be treated as an extension to the key deposit terms.
We do not accept cash key deposits on arrival. The key deposit must be paid with your final balance and will be refunded within 10 days of departure by cheque to the lead party name.
The key and security deposits do not represent full liability and we reserve the right to charge for damage or additional cleaning etc.
Payments by cheque
It is possible to pay for your holiday by cheque provided the cheque is received by us and cleared in advance of your payment due date.

Bookings made on the day of arrival (casual) and paid with cash must be accompanied with photo ID confirming the name and address given. ID must be in form of a full driving license or passport. A £50 cash security deposit will also be required for cash bookings.
All prices quoted include VAT at rates prevailing at the time. The price of your holiday will be subject to the rate prevailing at the time payment is received and the price of your holiday adjusted accordingly. This means that if VAT goes up then the balance due on any holiday will be raised accordingly.

Discounted pool passes
It is possible to pre-book Oasis Pool passes. They must be added to your booking BEFORE your arrival to the park and must be paid for in advance of arrival.

If you are holidaying with friends and family, we appreciate you may wish to be together. The cost of providing this service is detailed in the ‘additional holiday costs’ section.
If you require two or more pitches together, we strongly recommend this option. Without adding ‘With Friends’ we cannot guarantee that units will be together.
You will all need to book the same type of unit and request the ‘With Friends’ option when booking. Each party will need to add this to their booking and each party must provide the booking reference number of all parties they would like to be next to, so we can arrange this for you.
Please note we can only accept a maximum of 4 bookings as being ‘With Friends’ within any particular group. Larger group enquires may on occasion be accepted and pitches allocated at the discretion of management. This restriction is to help protect the family environment and the enjoyment of other guests. Consequently the behaviour of linked ‘with friends’ bookings must be in keeping with the rest of the site.

If your unit does not have adjacent parking, or for additional cars, there are car parks around the site for you to use. The car parks can be identified on the park map.
